The Jaguar I-Pace has to be one of the most hotly anticipated cars in the world this year. Jaguar themselves have been inundated with orders for the car coming from all round the globe. And unless you are friends with Prince Charles, or someone with serious connections within Jaguar, the chances are that you will not have seen one of these incredible cars on the road. In fact, we at EVision have only seen the prototypes at car shows, or watched reviews of the Jaguar I-Pace online (Fully Charged did a great review of the I-Pace on their show, as you would expect).

The Grand Unveiling

Well, the big EV news is that EVision Electric Car Hire is going to be one of the first customers in Kent to receive the Jaguar I-Pace! That’s right, the first batch of the I-Pace cars are already on their way to Kent from Austria, the country where this amazing vehicle is being built. We know that a lot of people have already shown an interest in wanting to hire a Jaguar I-Pace, and pretty soon this will be entirely possible. EVision have been given a provisional delivery date of the 9th of November, and we are now waiting in eager anticipation.

The Welcoming Party

adventure

When you are holding a pretty special event, such as the arrival of the award-winning Jaguar I-Pace, there is only one thing to do. Party! EVision, along with our friends from the Guy Salmon Jaguar showroom in Maidstone, are going to be hosting a very special launch day, with members of the media and local politicians present. We intend to make the I-Pace homecoming one of which it is truly worthy. EVision will be on hand to discuss the hiring side of the Jaguar I-Pace while a team from Guy Salmon Jaguar in Maidstone will be in attendance to provide some expert guidance on all elements of the I-Pace.

The Star of the Show

Before I get carried away with my excitement, I will tell you a bit more about the specifications of the Jaguar I-Pace we have coming our way. We can finally announce that the I-Pace we will be receiving at EVision Electric Car Hire will be fitted with a 90KWh battery. This means that our I-Pace with be able to do a top speed of 124mph, and can accelerate from 0-60 in an amazing time of just 4.5 seconds. There are very few cars on the market that will be able to match this incredible speed. Quite simply, the I-Pace is, well, pacey!

It’s not only the speed that impresses on the car. It also has a very generous range of 292 miles, so it is more than capable of handling any longer journeys that you may have planned. The Jaguar I-Pace has a low-level of gravity, which you would expect from an electric vehicle, but the stability is also well engineered. With a 50/50 weight distribution, split between the front and back of the vehicle, the I-Pace is able to handle the road with supreme confidence.

And, according to the Top Gear Magazine team who reviewed the Jaguar I-Pace, the car is also incredibly spacious. Top Gear’s newly found love affair with electric vehicles has certainly been kicked up a notch with the I-Pace, which was evident when Top Gear gave the Jaguar I-Pace an excellent review. It seems that the petrol heads have finally turned.

Tell me more!

adventure

There is more to the Jaguar I-Pace than just speed and range capability. The I-Pace cars that EVision will be receiving will be packed with delights to please everyone. Our Jaguar I-Pace cars will include a fixed panoramic glass roof, allowing your passengers to admire the nature and the stars as you drive along the road (depending on the time of day you drive. It’s very hard to see the stars at Midday!). This feature has appeared on some of our Teslas and is always a popular extra.

Our Jaguar I-Pace is coming fully prepared for winter. Heated washer jets, heated windscreen, heated steering wheel, heated front seats and a cold climate pack are all built in. Even on the coldest of days, our I-Pace will keep you toasty warm in defiance of the elements.

The comfort of the I-Pace is further enhanced with the inclusion of an active air suspension.

The After Party

As any fan of the Oscars knows, it’s the after party that everyone looks forward to the most. Well, after the big launch you will be able to hire a Jaguar I-Pace from EVision. The interest in the I-Pace has already exceeded expectation, and we can easily see why. If you want to be one of the first people in the Country to drive a Jaguar I-Pace, then you need to get in touch with us, either by registering interest with us on our website, or by calling our fleet office direct on 01634 914063.

A Car in Demand

adventure

The Jaguar I-Pace is clearly in high demand, with EVision receiving enquiries regarding the car for several months now. EVision will be receiving one Jaguar I-Pace to start with and further I-Pace cars will be delivered in the following weeks. But don’t forget, EVision has a very wide range of other electric cars for you to take out if you can’t wait to get behind the wheel of a technological dream car. Why not hire a Tesla while you wait for the I-Pace to become available.

One Last Thing

adventure

There is, of course, one detail I haven’t yet told you. What colour our Jaguar I-Pace will be. Well, I can put you out of your suspense now. The first Jaguar I-Pace that EVision Electric Car Hire will be receiving is going to be… narvik black!

Not all of our Jaguar I-Pace cars will be narvik black. But then again, I can’t give away all of our little surprises. You’ll just have to wait and see what we have in store for you!
